Vegan Caprese Crostini

Does anything scream summer more than fresh hierloom tomatoes and basil? Before I went dairy free Caprese salad used to be my all time favorite appetizer. Served with some crusty bread and high quality olive oil, it just couldn’t be beat.

When I discovered this brand of Vegan Mozzarella, I was so excited! I knew the first thing I would make with it was Caprese Crostini’s. This vegan cheese is made using cashews and the texture and taste is so similar to regular mozzarella, people cant even tell the difference!

This recipe is makes a delicious appetizer for summer or we have even ate it for a light dinner served alongside a salad. Its definitely a crowd pleaser, and is a great addition to any potluck or gathering as well.

It only takes about 20 minutes to throw together and you can easily adjust the quantities for more or less. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Just writing this is making me want it right now. 🙂

I have found that this brand of Vegan Mozzarella is the best! It tastes like the real deal and is made using cashews. You can find it at most Whole Foods and other major grocery stores!
